cesar fernandez for roger skateboards.

"this is sort of a "welcome to the team" video for cesar fernandez and sort of a commercial for one of our new graphics. at roger, we believe in killing two birds with one stone. not literally of course. if we were going to kill birds we'd just use poison."
- roger skateboards.

enjoy the short clip!

it's that time of the month again, kinda...

lodown magazine #70 february/march 2010
ironxhanger ©yet another great issue of this magazine straight outta germany/europe. inside this thick slab features skateboarders from "the holy land" (?), israel; jani laitiala, a talented kid on board from helsinki, finland who now resides in sao paulo, brazil and artist/skateboarder, olafur eliasson from denmark/iceland who joined forces with mekanism, a skateboard company from france, creating master pieces on decks resulting on what's called "the mercury ocean", a reflective coating on the bottom ply of the boards. also featuring artists such as robert indiana; franz hoefner's & herry sachs's art installations; art duo doppel denk; micheal johansson; a young designer, aitor throup; surrealist painter, nicola verlato; japanese american artist, tomokazu matsuyama and rob ryan. not forgetting some band(s) and artist(s) interviews too. also, lotsa products, press and music reviews inside too. and what's lodown without "black is beautiful" 'zine that comes smack in between the pages of this magazine.

color magazine volume 8 issue 2 summer 2010
ironxhanger ©where and how the fuck do i even start to review this beautiful slab? seriously, this is one of my top reads when it comes to skateboarding magazines besides thrasher and that goes without saying, of course. inside this canadian based magazine features... fuck it! go out to your local bookstore and grab yourself a copy. this is too good to even be put into words and my review will only ruin expectations of what color offers. but i have to say a few words before i jump onto my next review, color has one of the top skateboarding photography and features, in an artsy perspective and point of view, 'nuff said. go out and cop one!

thrasher magazine june 2010 - issue #359
ironxhanger ©what can i say about thrasher magazine? not much can be put into words. thrasher magazine, in my personal opinion, features the most hardcore skateboarders in the skateboarding world. notice that i didn't use the word "industry"? 'cause skateboarding is not a fucking industry, it's a fuckin' culture for dog's sake! it's either you get it or you don't, simple as that. thrasher magazine has been around since 1981, that's 29 fuckin' years and they have paid their dues. enough of my ramblings, go out and cop yourself an issue, any issue and yeah july's issue is already out, if i am not mistaken.

transworld skateboarding june 2010
ironxhanger ©i didn't purchase this magazine. a friend handed it to me after he had finish reading it. the only time(s) i'll grab myself an issue of this magazine is when i have nothing else to read in the john's, seriously. i'd never recommend transworld skateboarding magazine to any one and iasc can shove this mag' up their arses. i hope i don't get sued for saying that... ha! whatever man...
